Forrest Gump's 2021 PCT Thru-Hike

I hit the trail tomorrow. All my gear is ready to go as far as I know. I probably should’ve set my tent up a few more times since I’m new to tarp tents that use your pole but I’m certain I’ll get it in good time. My base weight is 18lbs which is nearly 10lbs lighter than the AT and CT. I’m not one for cold soaking or stressing about oz but I do enjoy a lighter pack that’s easier on my body.

Most all the light gear I have is thanks to Bedhead, my good friend and business partner, who also runs Nashville Pack. He pointed me toward a lot of lighter options. Maybe eventually I’ll switch to one of his packs.

On trail tomorrow!
